Yup.

 

I think this is going to be the most difficult part when I build mine as I don't have a drill press or anything and I'm pretty sure I'll screw up the positioning/alignment too haha.

 

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to drilling those holes...

There is nothing stopping you mounting the tube sockets on the case and running wires to the pcb, if you are concerned about drilling holes

Hey all I need some help here, I'm having some issues and I don't know what from, I have everything hooked up according to the pictures and all the right parts but when I turn on my amp all I get is sound from the left channel, the right tube heats up, the left does nothing and the right channel has nothing, and when I fiddle around with stuff place the volume gets much louder and gets a buzz, which happens when I fiddle with the volume pot a bit but might be from the tube shifting slightly, this is my first build so please give me any pointers, thanks

(note: if you need anymore pictures ill take some more)

Hello tigman9
1st I can see: in photo IMG_350 the input is different than photo 20140627_212046210_iOS (in this photo looks correct)
CHECK the input
2nd I can't see the connections of mosfets, tubes. Each one are warm?
CHECK with the drawing and multimeter (continuity mode) each channel

Also you can check the tube sockets.

Have luck

 

Toni
